9 hours ago this video was published on the 2K Official YouTube channel. So here is the upcoming Sid Meier game, called Starships!
In this game we will be commanding an entire starship fleet colonizing planets, helping other creatures by completing missions, quests and eliminating pirates, creating a galactic federation of our vision.
The game is a standalone video game, although it is going to have cross-connectivity with the freshly released Beyond Earth making the experience of both games deeper and richer.
The game will feature dynamically created battlefields, maps and challenges with various objectives and victory conditions. On the other hand we will be able to take various paths to the ultimate victory (like in previous games) such as: building a galactic empire, a galactic confederation or making your mark in the history books by being the most technologically advanced planetary system.
Other features, such as starship customization, diplomacy and planetary relations are also present in the game as many more other ones which about we have no idea as of now.
